I Can Wait.

  President Obama,  has a popular phase these days regarding his plans for this country should he be elected to a second term as President. The President,  makes it very clear that we meaning the American,  people can't wait for his policies to be passed by  Congress. He insist that if Congress,  won't work with him then he will go around  Congress. I have noticed a pattern here when ever the Present,  is challenged by Congress, he goes around them as much as possible and he he cannot do that then he embarks on a campaign of personal intimidation. The President,  even now is putting political pressure on the nation's Supreme Court,  to rule in his favor regarding the constitutionality of both the President's health care law and the state of Arizona's state law regarding immigration.
  I would submit to you, that there is a lot of things that the President can't wait to do in this country. The President,  can't wait to continue to increase the nation's debt ceiling and run this nation even further in debt.  in his first term the President has increased the national debt an additional five trillion dollars. Four years from now he could add another five trillion to America's debt. The nation's debt now stands at nearly 16 trillion dollar. Ask your self this question, do you really want to see America, twenty one trillion dollars in debt? I am afraid that is what Americans, can look forward to if Obama, is reelected for another four years. I don't know about you,  but I can wait for our nation to be that much in debt. I can wait for our nation's economy to collapse. I can wait for our nation to become a socialist government. I can wait for America, to become like many of the nations of Europe. I can wait for Iran to develop nuclear weapons. I can wait for small businesses to go out of business. I can wait for this nation to be further divided in the name of class war fare. There is one thing  however, I can't wait to do and I hope most Americans,  feel the same way. I can't wait to vote on November the sixth and do what I can to get President Obama,  out of office. Yes, indeed that is one thing I really can't wait to do and if you feel the same way join me at the voting booth in November. As always, my friends, these thoughts remain just some words to think on.

Each One Run's Their Race At Their Own Pace.

  My daughter,  and I love to play games together on my computer. I have noticed with  many of these computer games, before  you can go on to the next quest or level up as it were , you must first learn the lesson your present quest or level is trying to teach you because future goals will be accomplished based on the present goal your trying to achieve and you can go no further in the game until you master the present task.
  As a Christian, I find that often in my Christian,  life God,  has a lesson he needs to teach me. I hope to learn the lesson the first time but if I get impatient or too stubborn for God,  to teach me God,  simply waits until I am humble and willing to learn. Once I decide to let God teach me then he patiently works with me and after I have learned what he needs for me to then, it is as if God,  says to me okay my child now,  we can proceed to the next level. I have found in My Christian,  life I can only go as far as  my yielded will can take me as long as I yield my will to God's will I proceed very well in my Christian,  life. I find that the moment I tell God by my actions, and unwilling spirit that I want to do things my way God,  is very patient and polite he gives the reins of my will to me and after a while after I have made a complete mess of things, I then humble myself give the reins of my will back to God,  and he gently guides me back to the place in my Christian,  life where he left off. I then humble my self give my will to God,  and it's as if God,  says, Good, my child now we can continue to your next lesson or next goal or level of new achievement.
  I have learned that each Christian,  runs their own race at their own pace and each persons journey is different and serves a specific purpose designed by God,  for each individual person. The goal however is always the same to conform each Christian,  in the image of Christ. I found that with regards to a person's Christian,  maturity each person matures  at a different rate. Some Christians, learn faster than others, this is why you  can have some Christians,  who have been a Christian,  for a relatively short period of time yet you may find them to be very mature in the Lord in the Bible young Timothy,  comes to mind. I find that often you can encounter some one who may have been a Christian,  for many years but if they  refuse to  let God,  teach them or it just takes a while for God,  to teach them certain things than,  they will not mature spiritually speaking as fast as others may have. Jonah, was a prophet  of God,  but until he was willing to humble himself and Go to Nineveh, God,  could not use him and  Jonah,  had a whale of a time learning that!
  Remember to be patient with other Christians,  who may not be as far along in their Christian,  life as you may be I always try to remember how patient God,  is with me. Remember each Christian's journey is different and each one must run their own race at their own pace, as always, my friends, these thoughts remain just, some words, to think on.

By Any Other Name.

  My wife is from the Philippines. I went over there and married her there in 1999. We were married on my birthday that makes our anniversary very easy to remember. I remember I had to leave her there in the Philippines. I had to return to the US and wait for her. I had to wait fifteen long months while she went through the immigration process. When she finally was allowed to come to the US. We had to wait three years be fore my wife could even begin filling out all the paper work for her US citizenship  and there is a lot of it, and the cost to file all these papers was anything but cheap and we are not rich! My wife came to the US in 2001 and became a US citizen in 2007 six years of a lot of praying and hard work. I am very proud of her and she is very proud to be an American.
  I have noticed, that the liberal Democrats, along with the liberal media and the press and various liberal web sites and other liberal organizations, have all teamed up now and they  have decided to attack the US problem of illegal immigration by renaming it. A cleaver tactic I must admit and it may just work. Here is what I mean. Liberals have discovered over the years the way to do away with something is to first,  rename it. The 1973 Roe V Wade Supreme Court decision on abortion is a prime example. Liberals, consider abortion as a woman's right to choose they find doctors who say that until a child is out side of the womb it is just undeveloped tissue that can be thoughtlessly discarded because an undeveloped fetus is deemed not to be human and therefore has no rights and no choice needs to be made for the unborn regarding human life because liberals,  decided that unborn babies aren't human life. I find it strange, but that same conclusion was reached regarding the rights of  slaves in the south with the Dred Scott decision of 1857 this decision declared slaves weren't human they were property and it took the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 and 130 years of fighting for civil rights for African Americans,  to change that. Liberals,  have always done an excellent job at renaming various aspects of social behavior in the name of political correctness. Here are some more examples. Drunks,  aren't drunks they are  alcoholics,  who are helpless victims with a chemical dependency problem.The same logic is used for those addicted to drugs Let me ask you however, who  is it among those victims who decides to take the first drink or pop the first pill?  and those drugs they take  are often illegal drugs.
  Liberals,  are once again trying to rename illegal immigration by attempting to remove the term illegal from the social conscientiousness of American society. Liberals,  want to call them future workers, or future contributors to Social Security. There  is however,  the small matter of America's immigration laws it is illegal for undocumented people to be here! You have to understand a Liberals,  thinking first,  you rename the illegal immigrant, then you do away with the immigration laws all together make no mistake The liberal Democrats, need the potential votes of those undocumented immigrants to remain in office and although liberals,  call it immigration reform,  they really want to do away with most of the laws dealing with immigration. Liberals, claim the term illegal dehumanises the immigrant. Where was that line of thinking when they pushed for a  woman's right  to have abortions? When it comes to an illegal immigrant, if you call them illegal aliens, or undocumented workers, their status is still just as illegal and an illegal immigrant, is still an illegal alien by any other name. As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words to think on.

Words Of Regret.

  I have found, that if you live long enough, sooner or later you will say something that you regret and wish you could take back. I almost feel sorry for Vice President Biden,  or FOX  contributor Bob Beckel,  because they practically make a living sticking their foot in their mouth.
  I guess we all say things we later live to regret.I must admit I found EPA official Al Armendariz remarks about dealing with the oil companies quite disturbing. I don't know, but it seems to me that you don't encourage oil companies to bring their prices down by threatening to crucify them. I'm sure the citizens of Turkey,  really appreciated Mr.Armendariz's remarks and it's not like the US doesn't need Turkey, as an ally after all things are so  peaceful in Iran, right now.
  To his credit,   Mr. Armendariz,  did apologize saying that his remarks on how to deal with the oil companies were a poor choice of words. The lesson we can all learn from this is to be careful when your in the public eye because if you say the wrong thing, dare I say it? You'll be crucified by the press and the media.I mean, you can really get nailed in the media. These guys can really nail you to the wall! I'm just trying to drive my point home here. I think you get the idea. I guess we will always, have to put up with Vice President Biden and Bob Beckel, and most liberals in general, but, I guess we all have our crosses to bear. As always my friends,these thoughts remain just some words, to think on.

America's New Drug.

  As  a person who has a handicap and is now disabled, I can tell you the constant pain I live with is quite a challenge. I take certain prescribed medications but most of the time all they do  is make the pain a little less and maybe just a bit easier to cope with. My doctor often says,  I could take other medicines that are stronger but if I did I would sleep most of the time and my doctor says I could easily become dependant on them. I want to be alert and be aware of what is happening in my life and I don't want to become totally dependant on any drug just to function.
  I find, lately in America, many Americans,  are becoming dependant on a new kind of drug. What is this new drug? America's new drug of choice is not something that you'll find in any pharmacy. I believe many Americans,  start taking this new drug because they really need it and it makes the day to day struggles of life much easier to cope with and this new drug helps many Americans,  to function and maintain a fulfilled life. I'm afraid like most drugs however,   this new drug has some terrible side affects if you take too much of it for too long many Americans, will find themselves addicted to it and as a result they will lose the will to think for themselves or use their own initiative  or creativity eventually, I fear that many Americans,  may lose all sense of self reliance because this new drug is so powerful many Americans,  will lose their ability to think  without it.. What is this new drug you ask? The answer is simple, America's  new  drug is government. You see many Americans,  may need this drug from time to time to get through a truly difficult time in their lives, You know, like when you loose your job and you need some unemployment or some food stamps to help you get by until you can find a job and improve your situation. I have noticed however,  that many in America, have become  addicted to the drug of government so addicted they don't even look for jobs anymore. The new drug of government just keeps many Americans, so  totally dependant on it by providing endless weeks of food stamps, unemployment checks and in some cases,  even those who don't need this drug are just lining up to get it. I know of at least one person who said to me that they figured out how to get almost anything they needed thanks to this wonderful drug called government. I suppose that's true this drug called government can really take over your life and do everything for you if you let it This new drug called government,  will give you food stamps, unemployment checks and   in many cases,  a place to live, free health care,  free or nearly free education and all the liberal pushers ask in return is for Americans,  to remain dependant on the drug of government for their day to day existence and to vote for them when election time comes around. I have just one question, what happens when the drug of government runs out? I wonder where all those who have become so dependant on the drug of government will go or what they will do to obtain another fix of the drug of government to function and survive? I pray Americans,  will seek to get off the drug of government and soon so we may never need to find out the answer to this question. as always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

A New Hope And Change May Be On The Way.

  With  Governor Mitt Romney's five primary state sweep last night his GOP nomination for President is secure. As I listened to his speech last night, I noticed a new confidence in Mitt Romney, that I had not seen before. I had a better sense of where he wants to take the country. I heard for the fist time Romney's response to Obama's call for fairness. I would submit there are a lot of things that Obama, has done that are unfair. First,  whats fair about adding five trillion dollars to the national debt over the last three years? The national debt now stands at sixteen trillion dollars.What's fair about asking America's future generations to pay a debt they did not make? Secondly, Whats fair about asking the wealthy to pay more in taxes when forty nine percent of the American people do not pay any? Thirdly,  What's fair about taking the  American taxpayers money to invest  countless millions of dollars in solar companies that go bankrupt? I don't remember the President even asking the American people's permission to do this, do you? Fourthly,  What's fair about letting people buy homes they clearly knew they could not afford? The housing crisis, has indeed caused many fore closures but it has also caused many houses in America, to go down in resale value what's fare about that? Finally, what's fair about having to pay high gas prices? There are places in America, right now where gas is nearly six dollars a gallon and many Americans, can't even afford to travel or take a vacation, whats fair about that? President Obama ran on hope and change in 2008 but I have run out of hope that he will ever be able to really change anything! The only experience  Obama, has had at running anything is his mouth and  this nations economy and respect in to the ground! Yes, I would have to say he's done an excellent job doing that in fact, Obama, as far as Presidents go is the most successful failure I have ever seen in my life time.
  Mitt Romney,  offered the nation what I thought was a real chance for new hope and real change. A chance for out of work Americans,  to earn a pay check instead  of waiting for food stamps and an unemployment check. A chance for a young couple starting out to be able to buy a house that will appreciate in value when it comes time to sell it. Remember, when It was okay to be proud to be an American? I think Mitt Romney, wants to help America, regain the respect she deserves. A chance to restore this nations economy so that all Americans can be better off then they have been over the last three years and just about any positive changes, that Mitt Romney could make would be better than what we have now. I'm tired of the President always apologizing for my country. The only thing about America, I an sorry about is that she has a President,  who has only been successful at blaming others or making excuses for his failed Presidency. I guess one could say. Obama, has really been a sorry excuse for a  President. There is however one aspect of Obama's hope and change that I hope will come to pass. I along with most Americans I think  hope Obama, has to chance his address after November's election! As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Obama's Policies Are Jokes That Arn't Funny!

  In an attempt to secure the college vote Present Obama, is promising lower interest rates on college loans and student loan forgiveness under this new policy proposal a student would only be required to pay back only ten percent of a  guaranteed student loan based on a persons discretionary  income and they would make these payments for a period of no more than twenty years and after that,  any remaining balance on the student loan  would be  forgiven. Wow! where was loan forgiveness, when I went to college and borrowed 10000.00 and paid back every dime by paying 141 dollars a month for ten years? The President, realizes that the college crowed is not going to turn out in large numbers to vote for him like they did in 2008 and this policy of student loan forgiveness is his latest gift to college students in exchange for their vote.
  The President,  will make a guest appearance on both the Jimmy Kimmel,  and the Jimmy Fallon, late night talk shows. I suppose that is to show the college crowd that he is still the cool guy in the White House that they all voted for in 2008. I have nothing against comedians, telling jokes and I have a since of humor and can appreciate a good laugh as much as the next guy. The problem is Obama's policies especially regarding  the nation's economy have been a joke but I for one don't think it's been very funny for the the hard working American tax payers in this country. America, is sixteen trillion dollars in debt, Iran is right on the verge of developing nuclear weapons, Europe,  is on the verge of total economic  collapse, the price of gas and food have sky rocketed  and both Social Security and Medicare are broke.I should would like to know what's funny about all that!
  Hey, I know, after America's economy has collapsed and there is now no more   food money, or medical care for any one. Perhaps, the President,  can go one one of the late night talk shows and maybe he and Jimmy Kimmel, or Jimmy Fallon, or maybe even Jay Leno, can all tell some jokes. Yes, maybe that will help every one deal with what will surely be the greatest calamity in modern history, but I have a feeling no one will be laughing. As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just some words, to think on.

Financial Responsibility, Is A Moral Responsibility.

  Like many Americans, I get so tired of hearing the latest news from Washington, regarding the latest scandal to come out of the White House, concerning some department in our nation's government. Sometimes it seems there is a new scandal  all  most every day. I know, that those involved in the Secret Service, or the GSA or the latest green initiative project to go bankrupt, will be dealt with if only because the American public has been made aware of it because of the ample media coverage on these subjects. I guess, John Adams,  was also aware of the need for the public, to be informed of the affairs of government. He said it this way, "Liberty, can not be preserved, without a general knowledge among the people."
  I agree with John Adams, The press, and the media, are always saying, the public, has a right to know. The question I found mt self asking is, what happens when the American, people have been made aware of the serious problems facing this nation yet many Americans, and few, in our government it seems, are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to do anything about them?
  The American,  people know that this country is broke. I hear all most every day about our nations nearly 16 trillion national debt. The Democrats, in the Senate certainly are aware of this financial crisis, yet, for three years now they have put forth no fiscal budget and I don't hear many Americans, demanding that they do so even though it is required by law, that a government budget be draw up each April. The American people are surely aware that this nation's  two biggest entitlements namely, Social Security, and Medicare are going broke, and if truth be told their broke all ready. I look but I see know one among the American people saying they would be willing to suffer even the slightest cut in either of these two entitlement programs. Forty nine percent of the people in this country pay no taxes, but I am sure many Americans,  would march in protest if those Americans who currently pay no taxes were suddenly,  ask by the government to pay even the smallest amount in new taxes on their entitlement income. I feel, that since Americans,  are aware of the massive financial problems this country is facing the American,  people have a moral responsibility to demand that the leaders in our government be financially responsible. I have to be honest, I don't look for that to happen any time soon. The truth is many in America, like things just the way they are. I heard some one say in the news just recently, "I don't want a job, "I just want some more of  Obama's free money." That kind of thinking will lead to this nations total economic collapse. I wonder, when this nation's economy finally collapses because of the majority  of  the American,  people's apathy and indifference in general,  just who among the American people,  will be willing to accept the moral responsibility for it? As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

The Equal Opportunity Appointment.

  My daughter,  woke me from a sound sleep this morning, and told me her stomach was hurting. She said she could not really describe the pain, and she said her stomach had never hurt quite like the way it was hurting now. Suddenly, I forgot all about any sleep that I had lost. I wondered if she was having an appendicitis attack and although she is only ten, my wife was hoping she wasn't experiencing the trials that come with puberty too soon. Thankfully, as it turned out my daughter was suffering from a good old fashioned stomach ache probably brought on from eating too much pizza and popcorn from the night before. I thought to myself, isn't it amazing how your whole world  stops, and time seemingly, stands still when you think some one you love may be in  some kind of danger where their health is concerned? It's funny, how nothing else matters to you, until you know that the person you care about is all right.
  My mother will turn 87,  this month, I now that her time is very short and that each day she lives especially now is a precious gift from God. You know,  the truth is, any day that any one may live is a gift from God. My father, died from cancer three years ago he did however manage to live to be almost 84,  and I still miss him. Last week, the press and the media, were all talking about the untimely death of American Bandstand legend  and TV game show host and TV producer Dick Clark. Dick Clark,  died of a heart attack at the age of 82. Without question, Dick Clark, was a radio, and television  all American,  icon. I read on the Internet that when he died,  he had a personal fortune worth several millions of dollars. I then, thought to myself, here was a man who had fame and money and untold influence yet in the end he died and left it all. I then realized  all the fame or money in the world can not buy you even one more moment of life when death comes and God,  decides a person's time on earth is at an end. The Bible,  says, in Hebrews 4 : 27 that each person, has a set appointment  with death a specific time set by God,  alone when each person will die and after this? The judgement,  on each persons life which God,  alone will make, how very important then, to receive Christ,  as one's  personal  savior,  while one,  is still living here on earth. I have found that death, has a no discrimination policy in fact I marvel sometimes,at just how much death does not discriminate. Death,  doesn't care if your rich or poor very young or very old, very famous or totally unknown, a wealthy and powerful king or a penniless pauper. The truth is, when the time comes for a person to die that is one appointment each person will keep. I know when a person dies, they are often called  the late Mr. or  Mrs. so and so but I know that death is one appoint some may show up early for but death is definitely an equal opportunity  appointment no one will be late for. I am so glad I am ready for my appointment with death. I pray that all who may read this blog, will make make sure they are ready for their appointment with death when God,  decides their appointed time has come, As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

I Just Love Getting Free Stuff!

  I suppose it's only natural, to enjoy receiving something for free. I know that often times it doesn't even have to be that much. I often go to a local grocery store.I see the adds in the grocery store. My wife just loves those sales that are buy one get one free, so much so that she may buy something we don't even need on a particular day just because it was free.
  I heard on the news recently apparently, the city of Sanford, in Seminole County Florida, received three million dollars in government stimulus money from the Department of Energy, I guess Energy Secretary  Steven Chu,  has plenty of money to give to any state or county that ask for it. The officials in Sanford Florida,  were able to use all but 145.000 dollars of the government money since they could not think of anything else  to do with the remaining 145.000 dollars the Sanford,  city officials sought to give the left over  stimulus money back to the government. Would you believe it? The government would not take it so the officials decided to use the left over government stimulus money to give each resident of Sanford Florida,  a free energy kit which basically meant everyone got free high efficiency light bulbs along with what ever else came with the energy kits the news reporter said the residents of Sanford, were very happy and the news reporter ended the report be saying the folks in Sanford just love getting free stuff.
  I have to tell you,  that kind of thinking is what is wrong in this country, too many people think that if they get something from the government, that it is free. I remember the first rule of basic economics,  nobody gets a free lunch it may be free for one person but some one somewhere paid for it the folks art Sanford,  need to remember that any government stimulus money no matter what department it may come from that money is not free American taxpayers provided that stimulus money. What really troubles me is an ever increasing attitude in this country that every thing in this country should be free for everybody.I promise you that kind of thinking will one guarantee that everyone in this country will be equally broke. Tell me something, what's fair about that? As always my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Politics, Has Really, Gone To The Dogs!

  I have a family dog she is part Border Collie and part Beagle her name is Honey, and my daughter loves her to death! I must admit, I love dogs too. I have to say though, when I heard what David Axelrod,   had done posting on Twitter,  how bad Governor Mitt Romney,  was for making his families dog travel on top of his car when they went on vacation, and the showing the Presidents dog traveling inside his car, and trying to suggest that the Obama's treat their dog better than the Romney's do. I'm reminded  of that old Keneration dog food commercial remember? I think it went something like this, " My dog's better than your dog." " My dog's better than yours. " My dog's better cause he gets Keneration." "My dog better than yours." Today's updated political version would go some thing like this, Obama's dog travels better than than Mitts dog." Obamba's dog travels better than Mitts. " Obama's dog  travels better to any destination." Obama's dog travels better than Mitts." I admit,  thats a silly song but at times things seem almost that bad when it comes to political campaigns.
  Peta, gets all concerned when it was revealed the President has eaten dog as a boy in Indonesia. I guess when the President wants a hot dog, he wants fresh hot dog. I remember that Armor hot dog commercial only instead of Armor hot dogs, the President, likes fresh hot dog. Yeah, that's the dog he loves to bite! Peta, worries about animals yet unborn babies, are aborted almost for any reason in this country everyday, and Peta, thinks nothing of it! Look, I love animals, as much as the next guy however, When I consider all of the serious issues this country is facing at this most critical time in our nations history well let's just say all this talk about how dogs travel is doggone stupid. I'm sorry if  there are those who think this blog is a bit silly. What can I say? I guess I'm an old dog, and I just can't learn new tricks! I just hope  I'm not barking up the wrong tree!  As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words to think on.

What's Behind Door Number Two?

  As I watch the news lately it seems that every day President Obama, has a new White House blunder to explain, or some new scandal to cover up. Members of the press and the media, haven;t had this much fun since the troubled days of the Watergate,   scandal of the seventies or the Clinton, Lewinsky scandal of the nineties. I realize we live in a tabloid culture and often politics in general where the White House is concerned in often a daily tabloid event. Sometimes I remained of that old game show Let's Make A Deal only in this case scandals are offered up and traded for better scandals if the public is ready to trade in an old scandal well,  don't worry,  because Washington politics,  will always offer a tabloid hungry public an even better deal on a bigger and better scandal. Yesterday, it was the fast and furious gun operation scandal. or solar companies going bankrupt. Today, the public, has traded that scandal away in a since because behind door number two the White offers up the Secret Service party with prostitutes scandal. The  public can hardly wait till tomorrow to see what the President, and the White House,  will offer up for scandal trade behind door number one two or three.
  I sometimes wonder of all the latest  major political scandals you hear about, just how many political  scandals have gone on in times past or how many political scandals are going on right now that the American public,  knows nothing about and never will! I heard a commentator say recently,  all the scandals and misuse  of money at times would almost be funny if it weren't so pathetic personally, I just think the President, and politics in general, is  pathetic. There will always be those in the press and the media and even many in the general public  who can't wait for the next political fiasco to happen. I would submit to you America, is in real trouble economically, morally, spiritually, I think it;s time for many in the liberal media,  and the press, as well as many in the general public to quit treating  Americas true problems like just another scandal on a bad reality T V show. America, needs to make serious real hard choices about where we want to be as a nation if Americans,  want America,  to even be in existence,  twenty years from now. I hope many in America, will choose to make the hard choices that matter like a balanced budget,  a smaller and limited government,  steady work instead of endless welfare. I fell that if America, doesn't  deal with her real problems and soon Well, let's just say, I don't want to see what's behind the last door as far as America's future is concerned. As always my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Not Cops On Patrol, Cops On Petroleum.

  Americans, tired of high gas prices, can all rest a little easier now because President Obama,  has put forth a plan that will only cost a mere 52 million dollars to put into place. The plan it seems, is designed to put more cops on the beat so they can keep an eye on those sneakily little oil speculators. You might say, the President's new plan won't involve more cops on patrol just more cops on petroleum.I know I feel better knowing that Americans,  will now have the oil police watching out for them. Oil cops, I must admit that's a pretty slick idea. I often wonder just what will the President think of next? I wonder yes, I wonder but,  I really don't want to know! I'm so excited just think oil cops keeping an eye out for sneaky oil speculators. I often wonder what old Jed Clampet, would think if he had his own police force you know, keeping a faithful watch over his black gold, his Texas Tea!
  I find it strange,  that when the President, invest millions of American,  taxpayer's money in solar companies like Beacon Power or Solyndra, and they end up going bankrupt the only thing the President,  basically says is, "Well,  folks, you win some you loose some." I guess instead of drilling for more oil, the President,  is going to permit  the oil speculators to be drilled as it were by the cops! I have to ask my self, isn't the President,  guilty of lousy speculating when he takes American,  tax dollars and makes a so called investment  in these wonderful solar companies and then they file bankruptcy? Wasn't  the President,  only speculating that these solar companies would be successful? I don't know if the Presidents,  new plan for dealing with high oil prices will be successful or not. I suppose you could say, that right now, I' just not willing to speculate on that! As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

He's Not The First Just, The Worst.

  I must confess,  the never ending drama that continually surrounds the Obama,  presidency is a gift that just keeps on giving.There are just certain friends or White House personnel that President Obama, can always count on to totally say the wrong thing at the wrong time and totally mess things up! Here is what I mean if it's not Hilary Rosen,  opening her mouth and saying Ann Romney,  had never worked a day in her life, then Obama, can count on his reelection campaign right hand man David Axelrod, to practically endorse Mitt Romney, be saying he didn't want to stay on the economic road we're on right now.One thing is for sure if all else fails the President, can always count on his Vice President Joe Biden,  to say just the right thing at just the right time seriously, don't let Vice President Biden,  anywhere near an open mike the last time that happened the press and the media well let;s just say, they made a real big deal about! it and sometime Joe Biden's mouth can really put the vice in the Vice Presidency. I gotta tell ya, these guys,  never need any lunch because they're always chewing on their  feet which the keep constantly in their mouth.Don't worry if by some chance his friends and White House personnel fail him and say the wrong thing, Well, you know what they say, "If you want something done right, do it yourself."The next time the President, found himself around an open mike he opened his mouth and proceeded to continue the established White House tradition of sticking his own foot in his own mouth all by himself when he was heard  over an open mike telling Russian  President Dmitry Medvedev,  that he needed space and that he would have more flexibility after the election. I don't know but that thoughtless statement suggest to me that the President's speech, is very flexible  indeed, and he seems to have all the space he needs between his ears!
  Today, one of the President's,  top  GSA,  staff officials had his picture in all the papers sitting in a hot tub You know I'll just bet this is one story the White House and the President,  wishes would have stayed in Vegas or at least Hawaii,  as the case may be. Our nation is fifteen trillion dollars in debt, Europe,  is on the verge of total economic collapse, a war could break out at any moment in between Israel and Iran and the president has his hands full just trying to keep every one's  mouth shut I so glad the president has everything under control or at least under wraps! I have said before,  President Obama, is not the first President to have all kinds of  problems to deal with but he is however,  the worst President,  that I know of in my life time when it comes to dealing with those problems! As always, my friends, these words remain , just, some words to think on.

Secret Service Has A Whole New Meaning.

  Once again my mind goes pack to those golden days in 2008 when then candidate Obama, promised the American,  people that his would be a more honest and transparent presidency. The President has had his share of embarrassments lately. First, there was  Hilary Rosen's  thoughtless  comment saying,  that Ann Romney,  never worked a day in her life.Secondly, the GSA  spending scandal broke. Third, David Axelrod,  seems to be backing Mitt Romney,  for President, because, he said he didn't want an economy that keeps him on the path we're on,   I sure President Obama,  really appreciates that! Finally, it seems the Presidents Secret Service,  was caught receiving a service I'll bet they wish was still a secret.
  I realize,  politics  and corruption are nothing  new and they often go together  like  cookies  and milk, peanut butter and jelly, or Democrats,  and tax increases. President Obama, promised the American people that he would not conduct business as usual in Washington. Funny, it sure seems the same to me. President Obama, promised he would not take money from so called lobbyist.  The New York Times, reported recently, that  at least 15 lobbyist have raised money  for President Obama's reelection campaign to the tune of some five million dollars but whose  counting.
  I know that President Obama, is not the first President,  to break a political election promise, nor is he the first president that's  had to deal with one or more  moral scandals and he won't be the last, this latest  situation with the Secret Service however combined with the spending scandal involving the GSA is just so blatant so in you face as it were that it almost seems as though he is saying to the American,  people "So, what are you going to do about it?" A question I hope will be dealt with and soundly,  answered  with  the November,  election. As always my friends, these thoughts remain just, some words, to think on.

Often The Bottom, Can Be A New Start.

  I heard a man say the other day that he would love to have a new job. He then said,  the reason he would not start a new job was because he didn't want to start out at the bottom. I understood what he meant but I couldn't help thinking to myself, sometimes,   the bottom,  is the only place one can start and very often the bottom,  can be a place for a new start or a new beginning. I saw a bumper sticker recently that said "When your tired of doing things over maybe you'll decide  to do it right the first time!" I admit at first glance those words seem real cleaver but I would submit  to you sometimes,  in  life all you can do is start over.
  Speaking from my own experience as a Christian, there have been times, when I have really messed up. There have been times in my life when I thought I had everything under control and then of course pride develops  and not long after that I find I don't seek God's wisdom and soon things just fall a part in my life and I say things I shouldn't or do things I shouldn't and if I continue to seek my own way and rely on my own wisdom sooner or later spiritually speaking I find my self at rock bottom. I find as a Christian, all I can do is humble myself confess my sin of pride and complacency to God,  and then It's as if God says, now that you have come to the end of yourself and reached  rock bottom now I can teach you and we'll start right here at the bottom and if you yield your will to me there  is now limit to how far I will raise you up. I am so comforted as a Christian, that when I mess up in my life and at times hit rock bottom and I tell God,  I'm sorry that once again, that's where I have to start. I'm glad it doesn't matter where God found me. He just puts his arms around me and says I still love you my son, from the bottom of my heart. As always,  my friends, these thoughts remain,  just some words to think on.

All Things Should Not Be Equal.

  I recently heard on the news New Jersey's  Governor Cris Cristie, say, that he believes America,  is be coming an entitlement society I hate to say it but I think he's right. I know people who have been offered steady jobs but because they could stay home and make more money on unemployment benefits they refuse the steady job.I heard another person on the news  say,  while he was standing in a welfare line that he didn't want a job he wanted a career and if he couldn't have a career then he was just going to keep taking some of Obama's free money. President Obama's  so called,  free money may be free for him but it is provided by  American taxpayer's who are still working to provide it!
 Some how, in this country, we have conceived the idea that because all men are created equal that everyone should be equal  in prosperity. Every American,  should  have an equal opportunity to work hard to achieve success. The idea that if you don't  have as much money as Bill Gates or Donald Trump, or even Warren Buffet, whose name is being used to form a buffer between the wealthy and the not so wealthy with the proposed Buffet rule,the thought  that the government,  should help make everybody financially equal is not possible and is not,  economically healthy for this country.
  Why should anyone have a dream and work hard make money and become wealthy if the government will tax that person  so much in the name financial equally this  the person  now prefers not to strive to be wealthy? Here's an idea, those who clammer for financial equally could,  make money like Smith Barney, they could,  make money the old fashioned way, they could,  work hard  and earn it! I would submit to you when Americans,  no longer dream of and strive for success  by thinking of new ideas to achieve success  because it is expected by our  society and much easier to set back and let the government do our  thinking for us  it is ironic but it is  then,  the liberals dream for financial equality,  will then be realized because this nation will become like most of Europe,  and we will all be equally broke. I suppose that the  government's  policy then, will be called,  mutually assured poverty. As always, my friends, these thoughts  remain, just, some words to think on.

Giving Your Fair Share Is One Thing Taking It That's Another.

  Did you ever have one of those days when every thing that could go  wrong did? Well I have to tell you lately I've had a lot of those days one right after another. I'm staring to feel like Bill Murry, in the movie Ground Hog's day! My wife and I could really use a vacation but we don't have the money and gas prices are really to high to travel too far.
  We hear a lot of talk from President Obama, and he sure loves to talk these days he's demanding the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes.He makes this demand in spite of the fact that forty nine percent of this nations citizen don't pay any.I ask you, where is their fair share? The rich,  have earned their money and if they choose to donate some of it to the government that's one thing but demanding the rich be forced to pay there fair share when they have already been taxed once on money they worked for and earned well, the way I see it, that;s another thing all together.
  I confess,  I grow weary for President Obama's   Robin Hood economics. I noticed that the government employees who work for the GSA,  have no problem at all just taking their fair share and right out of the American tax payer's pocket. You know,  Obama, ran on hope and change and his fame took off just  like  rockets.  Now,  four years later  Americans hope the have some change left after Obama, finishes picking their pockets. You know,  my wife and I really could use a vacation and I'd just love to go some place  exciting some place like Hawaii, That is only a dream for me however,  I don't have the money and I don't work in the GSA. As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just some words to think on.

Before You Open Your Mouth, Be Sure To Engage Your Brain!

  My father gave me a good piece of advice just about the time I turned sixteen. Like many young men at sixteen, I was quite sure I knew just about everything in life that was worth knowing. I often made jokes and smart remarks when I found some one I thought was rather uninformed about just how knowledgeable I was at sixteen.On one occasion, I mouthed   off to my Dad, and he said, "Son, remember, before you open your mouth be sure to engage your brain." I admit, I still still speak before I think sometimes,  but I do try to remember my dad's advice
  My dad's words of wisdom came back into my mind the moment I heard Democratic strategist, and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen, say on the news that Governor Mitt Romney's wife Ann Romney, had never actually never worked a day in her life.You can bet,the President's reelection campaign staff wishes Hilary Rosen,  would have made sure your brain was engaged before she opened her mouth. I would submit to Hilary,   Rosen, that raising five children is hard work. I wonder if she would care to try to do it while at the same time dealing with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer?  I have a hard enough time raising my daughter and dealing with cerebral palsy. I wonder how many nights of sleep Ann Romney,   lost over the years because she was caring for children who were sick. I wonder how many times Ann Romney, became sick herself because she tried to comfort her sick children when they were young. I'll just bet that happened more than once. I would submit to Hilary, Rosen, that raising five children is hard for any mother, raising five children while dealing with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer  that is a task that at times can be almost impossible.I would suggest to President Obama's reelection campaign staff perhaps they should  seek another advisor . I'm not at all sure miss Rosen's advice will help them. I would advise Hilary Rosen, to make an all out effort to keep her foot out of her mouth.I would suggest that consider taking my dad's advice.When I consider the political wisdom of Hilary Rosen, I am reminded of an old Chinese proverb, "Better to remain silent and thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and absolutely remove all doubt! As always, my friends, these thoughts  remain, just some words to think on.

Stepping Aside, With Honor In Tact.

  As a parent with a handicap I can tell you my wife and I thank God everyday that our daughter is an intelligent energetic nine year old that wants to know everything you can know about anything. A quest that sometimes drives me  nuts but I wouldn't have it any other way. When I heard on the news that Senator Rick Santorum, decided to suspend his campaign for the GOP nomination for president. I had to admire not only his reasons for doing so but the style and classy way he did it. There is no question that it is hard enough to run for president when are things are going well. Senator Santorum, had to be constantly concerned  about the health of  his precious little three year old daughter Bella, She was born with a rare genetic disorder called Trisomy,  and her life will always be hard just living from day to day with any quality of life will be a constant struggle for little Bella,
  Senator Santorum, knew he had a hard fight ahead of him and Governor Romney, already has such a large delegate lead and every possible financial advantage. I'm glad in the end Senator Santorm, put the needs of his family first. He ran a great race and stayed true to his principals all throughout his campaign.I must say, that is a quality rather rare for a politician these days. Rick Santorm, has nothing to be ashamed of he ran an honorable race with class and dignity. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he tried for another presidential run in 2016 or 2020 no matter what Rick Santorum's political future may hold he has shown me he is a father first and a man with honor. as always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Can't I Have Compassion And A Balanced Budget?

  Recently,  a person in my neighborhood who is a committed liberal said to me, "If you were a real Christian,  you would want the Obama, law to stay in place.He then asked me after all didn't Jesus heal the sick? I said yes he did but, he also asked, in Luke chapter 14 verse 28" If a man wishes to build a tower, doth he not sit down and count the cost to see if he has enough to money to build it? I admit that is not a word for word quote but that is the general meaning of Luke 14 verse 28.
  As a Christian,and as a person who has had to deal with cerebral palsy from birth believe me I know what it is like to need health care.I have compassion for the poor for I am one of them. I realize however, that Obama care if it goes into full affect in 2014 will further bankrupt this already struggling nation The latest report seems to indicate that Obama care,  will add 530 billion dollars to the nation's deficit. I suppose to some that doesn't seem like much since the nation is already 15 trillion dollars in debt. As a conservative and a Christian, I must balance compassion with a certain amount of financial responsibility. I realize if our nation goes broke and has an economic collapse  then everyone will be poor and there will be no help of any kind for anyone. Think of it this way, no one will be able to remain healthy, if our nation's economy and the budget deficit, remain unhealthy.As always, my friends,these thoughts remain, just,  some words, to think on.

A Cup Of Cold Water

  My wife is from the Philippines. Recently,  a friend of hers who is also from the Philippines,  came to our house with a problem. She wanted to ask the phone company if they could send her a new cell phone she has full filled her contract and she was ready for an upgrade. My wife,  and I listened while she told us how she went to the local office to ask about getting a different cell phone. The main office just referred her to their 800 number and didn't really bother to help her.I knew their was a language issue and my wife's friend didn't feel comfortable talking to the phone company by herself so my wife ask me if I would call the phone company on be half of her friend. I called the phone company and explained what my wife's friend need in fifteen minutes I resolved the whole situation and our friend from the Philippines was very happy. I think she thanked me at least ten times. I told her it was no problem but she said to me over and over again,  thank you for just taking the time to help me. I really appreciate it.

 I heard on the news that football  great Tim Tebow, spoke at some type of Easter Sunday service. I am glad he is out there using his platform as a football player to set a good example for the youth of America. I appreciate the fact that he realizes the fact that he is a role model. I admire the way he is humble and at the same time he doesn't apologize for his Christian,  faith. I think however, sometimes there is a tendency for other Christians to think I am not famous so what real difference can I make?
  The truth is there  are many Christians,  who go about their daily lives doing all sorts of good for their friends and neighbors but not everyone will know about and it won't be on the news or make the papers. God, always sees when a thoughtful deed is down for another in his name, I can assure you, no good deed a Christian,  does in God's name goes unnoticed or unrewarded.The Bible,  even says, in Matthew chapter ten verse forty two that if you give a cup of cold water to someone who is thirsty and in need such an act of kindness would not go unrewarded. The Bible, says in Matthew,  verse twenty five  verse forty that when we as Christians help another person in need it is the same as if you had helped Jesus,  himself personally.
  A person can quietly and thought fully live their life before others and others will see your good deeds and thus bring glory to God,  in Heaven,  and that is the only real reason a Christian,  should do anything and living ones life for  the good of others, indeed brings glory to God,  even if it doesn't make the news or no one reads about it  in the papers.A true Christian,  doesn't need to wear a bright neon sign saying,look at me I'm a Christian. I can assure you when a person seeks to live his life for the benefit of others it doesn't take people very long to see who the Christians are. As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

We Sorrow Not.

  I recently told my nine year old daughter that I was almost fifty two now and I was getting older.I then ask her knowing we are a Christian,  family and she goes to a private Christian,  school, was she sure she had asked Jesus into her heart to be her saviour.I asked if she understood that she was a sinner and that Jesus died for her sins and then again I asked if she had accepted Jesus,  into her heart. I was so pleased when she said, " Oh yes daddy, my teacher in first grade told me about Jesus an how he died  and rose again on the third day and I thanked Jesus, for dying on the cross for my sins, and asked him into my heart to be my saviour so I could be with him in Heaven. I can't tell you how happy I was to know she clearly understood the message of the gospel and the plan of salvation I was so happy she knew Jesus was her personal saviour.She asked me why I had asked her did she realize mommy and daddy would die some day she said yes,I then said,  "Well, daddy, just wanted to be sure that if mommy and I die hopefully, that is still quite a few years from now, but if we die we know we will all meet in Heaven one day and we'll meet you one day, when you get there." "Oh! she said, "Daddy, that's a good thing to know!" I said, it sure is honey! She then paused and asked, "Isn't that what Easter is really all about?"I told her that's exactly, what Easter is all about because Jesus Christ,  the son of God,  rose from the dead those who believe in him and have accepted him as their saviour from sin their earthly body may die here on earth but their soul will live for ever with Jesus for ever along with all their love ones who have died  and gone to Heaven before them.
  I share this message with you today  because I feel so very sorry for those who consider themselves, to be atheist. The saddest funeral  I could ever attend is one where I could not say I knew the person was saved and on their way to Heaven. You see, an atheist,  has no hope of ever seeing their loved ones again and all that is waiting for them is an eternity separated from the presents and the love of God , which means all the have to look forward to is everlasting darkness and real sorrow. Christians, have the blessed hope, we shall see Jesus, that is why, in  first, Thessalonians,chapter four verse thirteen  Paul says,  "We sorrow not even as others who have no hope." I am so happy as a parent,  to know when I and my wife die and go to Heaven we shall see Jesus and we shall see all the saints and our loved ones who have gone on before us and we can die knowing for sure we shall meet our daughter one day in Heaven as a Christian and as a parent my friend when you think of the real meaning of Easter is their any greater joy than this? I think not. As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Often The Wrong Path Is The Path Of Least Resistance.

  I have recently had the pleasure of being bit by a spider and the antibiotics I am taking often make me feel drained drowsy and down right lazy. My daughter,  is a very intelligent hard working student in school. Like most children however, she is tempted to take the path of least resistance when it comes to getting her home work done. Sometimes, I tell her every once in a while we all get bitten by the lazy bug.
  I am greatly concerned for our nation , I fear that many Americans today have been bitten by the lazy bug and it's poisonous venom,  just like a spider's bite,  has  spread all through our nations culture. The philosophy of taking the path of least resistance is demonstrated when a person refuses a study job because they decide the can make more drawing unemployment. I heard a man say on the news recently "I don't want a job,  I want a career and if I can't have a career then I just want some more of Obama's  free money!"When you have members of the GSA,  an organization in our government dancing and making a video because they are proud of the fact that their job permits them to rob American, taxpayers blind and then boldly proclaim it will never be investigated,no wonder  their are so many Americans, who are tempted to say,"They're getting away with it so why shouldn't I."
  The truth is,  the path of least  resistance is often the wrong path.The path of least resistance in every case throughout history, has always been the path the leads to the ultimate destruction of a culture a civilization or a nation, even the Bible,  points out that there is a way that seems right to a man or in this case a nation, but the end there of is the way of death. I fear that for too long now many in America, have grown accustomed to the path of least resistance that path I fear will lead to the destruction of America as a nation. As Always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just some words to think on.

God Is And His Word Are Beyond Dispute.

  I was happy to hear that the Super Intendant,   of Stall Brooke Elementary School,  in Bellingham,  Massachusetts, decided the elementary students there would be allowed to sing Lee Greenwood's song the way he wrote the school decided the children will be permitted to sing God Bless The USA. You know,  I have to say,  maybe if the left leaning liberals in this county would quit worrying about being so politically correct maybe God,  really could and really would  bless America. Who knows, if Americans,  would humble themselves and turn from their at times,  wicked ways then God, just might hear from Heaven,  forgive America's sin,  and heal this land not just economically, but spiritually as well.
  I am sure, the members of the Supreme Court,  will be pleased that Attorney General Eric Holder,  and the Justice Department,  have concluded that the Supreme Court's roll in our government as far as the Constitution of the United States, is concerned is clearly spelled out. The Supreme Court,  will have the final word on the constitutionally, of Obama care and that,  according to Attorney General Eric Holder, is beyond dispute. Well, that may be true on earth but I know God,  is the final authority on all things regarding the affairs of men and one day all men and women both liberal and conservative both true believers and all atheist, small and great will stand before God. I can assure you,  his justice will be swift,  his verdict will be just, and his ruling when dealing with all mankind, will be final. God will have the final word and when he does,  I assure you,  his existence,  just like his word,  will be beyond dispute! As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

The Dog Ate My home work, Just Ain't Gonna Get It!

  You know in 1971,  I was eleven years old. I stood before a Judge because I was about to be adopted into a wonderful Christian home. I remember our lawyer told us that the judge was detained in his chambers and would be a little late. Our lawyer then offered to send someone to the judges chambers to see just how long the judge was going to be detained. I spoke up and told our lawyer please let's not rush the judge. I was only eleven at the time but our lawyer was so impressed with my words of caution he told my prospective parents,"This young  man is wise beyond his years!" I may have been only eleven but even I knew you didn't want to make a judge  mad by rushing him especially, when he's about to rule on your case.
  I will submit to you, I was surprised that President Obama,  felt it wise to call into question the authority of the Supreme Court, to rule on the constitutionality of  the Obama health care law. Now, this is just me, but I would think the last thing President Obama, would want to do is up set the judges on the Supreme Court especially when making them mad just may tempt them to rule against him. Judges are human too and they have feelings something President Obama, would have done will to remember.
  Apparently, US 5th Circuit of Appeals Judge Jerry Smith, was not amused by the President's,  remarks and he has given Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department,   a bit of a legal homework assignment. Judge Smith, ordered the Justice Department to provide a no less than three page single spaced letter out lining specifically what the judicial roll  of the Supreme Court,  is as defined by  the Constitution of the United States. I imagine the Justice Department,  will comply and have this homework Assignment done by Thursday at noon Houston,  time. With the mood Judge Smith,  appears to be in lately, I have a feeling if Attorney General  Eric Holder,  or some other representative from the Justice department should show up on Thursday at noon Houston time with out the completed letter that was assigned as home work, I just have a feeling telling Judge Smith, "Your honor, the dog ate my home work."  Call me crazy, but I just got a feeling that just ain't gonna get it! As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

It's Time For Some Players To Leave The Table.

  With Governor Romney's clean sweep of the Maryland, Wisconsin, and District of Columbia last night, some of the players in this GOP presidential poker game must now think about folding their cards and leaving the table Let's face it the game of politics, is always a gamble and a little luck thrown in now and then doesn't hurt. Governor Romney, now has 655 delegates after last nights three state primary wins and anyone who can count can see that he is more than half way to the 1144 delegates that he needs to win. Senator Rick Santorum,  has a respectable 278 delegates but that still leaves him 377 delegates behind Governor Romney. Speaker Gingrich,  is a good man and he gave it a good try but let's face it his delegate count stands at a very weak135 delegates he has no money it's time for this old gambler to fold his cards and leave the table. Congressman Ron Paul, can stay at the table but only because no play he has ever made has ever made any difference with only 51 delegates his political existence is rather meaningless at this point and the truth is it never really made any difference in the first place.
  Senator Santorum, may feel the need to stay in the game at least until the results of Pennsylvania, primary are in. One would think he has a good short at winning since it is his home state but he only has a six point lead right now and Governor Romney, has nearly three weeks to pound away at Senator Santorum's lead with negative adds it is clear Senator Santorum,  is taking perhaps his last gamble and making his last play. Some have even suggested he should fold his hand right now so he won't risk loosing in his home state . I doubt however, that he will do that. How would it look if a man would choose not to compete in his own home state? It's one thing to compete and lose It;s quite another to not even try. I do fell that regardless of how the results turn out in Pennsylvania, Senator Santorum,  should then fold his political cards and leave the table. Speaker Gingrich,  should have already folded his political cards,   he runs the risk now, of just looking like a sore loser and appear to be acting like a cry baby, because he can;t have things his way. Congressman Paul,  can do whatever he wants because frankly,  he has never really mattered in this political game so what difference can he make? Senator Santorum,  deserves to try to make one last play in Pennsylvania, then he needs to fold his hand and tip his hat to Governor Romney, and leave with his respect and dignity, in tact. He needs to remember there is something to be said for losing with grace dignity and class. Politics, is indeed a lot like gambling and just like that song by Kenny Rogers The Gambler says, you gotta know when to hold'em and you gotta know when to fold'em and in my opinion,  after the Pennsylvania, primary Senator Santorum, Speaker Gingrich, and Congressman Paul if he has any sense, all need to fold their political cards and leave the the table. As Always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

It's Only Money Right?

  I am continually amazed at the way President Obama, permits the government to so carelessly spend  the  hard working American,  taxpayers money. I am often left with the impression that he permits this foolishness because he couldn't care less! The President,  brings new meaning to an old Beatles song, The Fool On The Hill. Today, I heard on the news that an another solar company,  followed in the foot steps of Solyndra, and declared bankruptcy. This company had been offered a 2.1 billion dollar  guaranteed loan by the government the good news for American taxpayers is the company executives realized they could not compete with China, and decided not to take the money offered by the government. Score one for the American taxpayer!
  The government,  is very creative at coming up with ways to waste American taxpayer money and it seems there is always someone in the government,  more than willing to waste it. General Services Administrator, Martha Johnson,  is the latest government official to resign because she was found guilty of mismanaging government money, for some reason I wasn't that surprised! Apparently, a training conference was held in Henderson Nevada, I think what they must have been training to do was to spend the American taxpayer's money because that's exactly what they did.The total cost for the conference was 822,751.00 dollars. The training conference was attended by 300 people.The so called team building  contractor was provided 75000.00 for just one day of this very necessary training vital to something I'm sure, and  the GSA awarded 58000.00 dollar contract to a large business in violation of small business set- asides. Ah,  yes, nothing warms the cockles of my heart like seeing hard working American,  taxpayer's money at work why there was even money allotted for tuxedo rentals and other expensive clothing for GSA employees. There stated goal was to have a training conference bigger and better training conference better than ant other training conference that may have preceded this one. Well, I'm sure with 822,751.000 dollars of the American taxpayer's money everyone had a good time. I'll bet they can't wait fir the next one! As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Who Your Friends Are Says A Lot About You.

  My mother always said, "Show me who your friends are,  and I'll tell you what kind of person you are." I believe she is right. I hate to pass judgement on anyone, it does at least on the surface appear that President Obama's reelection campaign could use a little campaign finance reform. The AP and The Washington Post have reported that President Obama,  will more than likely have to return a fifty thousand  dollar campaign contribution which he received from someone named Abake Assongba, Assongba, is being accused of fraud and impersonating a bank official. Miss Assongba,is accused of stealing some six hundred fifty thousand dollars to build a home in Florida and still owes ten thousand dollars in unpaid  rent for an apartment in Brooklyn. this highly questionable fifty thousand dollar contribution  comes on the heels of another two hundred thousand dollar  campaign contribution from famed casino owner Juan Jose Cardona that  Obama's reelection campaign has agreed to return.
  I don't know but it appears to me,  that the staff that runs the Obama campaign should examine their list of donors a bit more closely. I'm not suggesting for a moment that this type of thing doesn't happen with Republican campaigns but remember President Obama's campaign tactics were going to be different. He was going to run a more transparent campaign. I'd have to say his campaign is transparent all right, I can see right through it! I think this is just another example of dirty back room Chicago,  politics as usual.I would have to say that President Obama's choice in friends only  serves to make me trust him less and I didn't trust him much to start with! as always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.

Some Things Are Gained And Lost Over Time.

  Have you ever noticed how some things really go down hill or how every thing you've got seems to all break down at the same time? I don't know what it's like at your house, but in the last week my coffee maker broke my screen door blew off because of a storm, two light bulbs burned out, and the speakers on my computer just gave out.Why is it that things all seem to break down all at the same time? I tell you sometimes I think it's some kind of retail conspiracy designed to assure the makers of various products that you will have to come back eventually. I often feel the same way when I see my doctor. I often ask myself, why can't he give me enough medicine to take care of my problem with just one visit? I don't know about you but in my case it usually takes about three doctor visits to finally deal with whatever the problem or situation may be.
  I guess,  this is not really that unusual I am getting older and I can assure you, there are things I could do five years a go that I can't do nearly as well now and not as long either because if I try to do some of the things I did just five years a go with the same intensity, I'll have to wait for the screaming to stop!I suppose that's just the way it is you spend about 25 years growing and building your body up and then you watch over the next forty five years or so as old age and  gravity gradually break your body down it seems one's health and certain of life's conveniences are both gained and lost gradually, over time.
  The same can be said about a great  nation like America, it took a revolution and about 200 years to build this nation;s government based on laws that promote  religious  tolerance and the basic idea that all men and women are granted certain liberties by God. I have noticed however since the early sixties any influence that promotes  a belief  in the Bible,  God,  or prayer has been over the years slowly  taken out of the public arena. Today Catholics,  must provide free contraception for the women employees who work for them Tomorrow, the government will decide that the word Catholic,  must be removed from any of their hospitals and their  other charitable organizations. Today, Stony Brook University, can decide not to recognize  religious holidays in the name of political correctness and fairness,  tomorrow the government may ban the holidays of Christmas and Easter all together. Today,  you are free to go to your particular house of worship and practice your faith as you choose, tomorrow, the government may decide to tell you what church you will go to and what you will believe that is if the government decides you need to go to church at all! Today the government the ultimate tax man demands the rich pay their fair share. Tomorrow, the Government will take all the money and property from Americans, and then the government will decide if anyone gets a share at all! The new law regarding health care if allowed to stand will demand that every one but into it and once you do the government will decide who will be treated, who will be treated first, and who will be allowed to live and die. How does all this happen? The answer is quite simple it happens,  when good men and women are lulled to sleep by false political promises and even good Christians,  have for too long remained silent. We gained our freedoms and religious liberty gradually, over time and we are loosing them the same way  I pray many patriotic Christians,  everywhere will wake up and speak out before it's too late! As always, my friends, these thoughts remain, just, some words, to think on.
